The symptoms you describe point to a loose or cracked speedometer cable. The cable likely needs to be replaced.

I have a 51 Focus. My speedo has developed a habit of occasionally reading no speed or sometimes too fast and generally being erratic. Sometimes this is accompanied by the odometer going blank but not...


Your problems sound like they are electrical, i would suggest you take it to an electrician and have them identify the problem, it most likely is not the speedometer as all that does is just output the speed, the speed sensor might be one thing you can look at.

My speedometer drops to zero or jumps erratically plus cruise control stops. This only happens occasionally when at highway speeds. Rarely in town.


sounds like a bad speedo drive gear or speed sensor mounted on the rear of the trans there is no speedo cable, its electronic its not expensive take it to the dealer they will know exactly whats wrong with it

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

Only 1000-2000 RPM? Does it do that in any gear?

Speedometer, Radio Volume Intermittently Jump


The blower problem is caused by a blower motor resister pack. That resister pack is what causes the blower motor to have more than one speed. The other problems could be related to circuits that also connect to the resister pack or use a common ground but I'm not totally convinced of that. Remember, the speedometer is electricly driven (there is no cable from the transmission to the speedometer on this car). It could also be a faulty ground going to the radio/speedometer. Do the problems seem to happen when you hit a bump?

Much good luck!
